Tuning In

cooltext1943231017

We have been working through the Tuning In stage of our inquiry into “What is Motion?”. In this stage we begin to get excited and engage with our topic, ask questions and share our prior knowledge.

Our first activity was to play some games of Angry Birds and discuss the motion involved.

Then we made catapults to help us become even more engaged with the topic.

We also completed a pre assessment where we responded to a blog post on motion (you can see that on this blog!). We had to write a comment with everything we already know about motion.

Another Tuning In activity was to build balloon rockets. These were a lot of fun.


We have one more Tuning In activity to do this week. We will be creating questions about motion. Stay tuned to see our questions.
